MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker is back from a trip to Kosovo to thank Wisconsin National Guard soldiers for their service.
The governor spent two days meeting with about 160 servicemen and women from Wisconsin.
Walker held a town hall meeting with them where he not only talked about their deployment, but also about their return.
"The benefits that are available to them and how we're going to work with the Department of defense and through the state Department of Military Affairs and State Department of Veterans affairs to make sure they're fully integrated back into the jobs or those looking for work, the job is there as well," said Walker.
The troops are nearing the end of the year-long deployment.
About 30 came home this week.
